*We encourage the use of e-mail by our existing clients and potential clients. However, the sending of e-mail does not create an attorney-client relationship. In the absence of an attorney-client relationship, e-mail messages are not treated as confidential by our firm. Non-clients are cautioned against sending initial e-mails that go beyond general inquiries about our firm and the services we provide. No one should send us confidential information by e-mail unless authorized by one of our attorneys. To avoid computer viruses, attachments to email received in our office will not be opened and will be deleted if the source is not recognized.
